With more than a hundred people waiting in the audience, Chattanooga's future Mayor Andy Berke introduced three key members of his team.
"We continue to have an exhaustive review of city government. We wanna make sure we have the best people working for the city," Berke said.
Travis McDonough will be Berke's Chief of Staff, he is the leader of the litigation department at Miller and Martin and serves as co-chair of Berke's transition team.
To some, these faces may be unfamiliar, but Ken Hays, former Mayor Jon McKenzie's Chief of Staff in 1997 knows them well and gives News 12 some insight.
"Travis is a get it done type person, I mean he's somebody that is got a good touch about him, good manner, has a good good feel of the city of Chattanooga," said Hays.
"Mayor Berke has laid out a clear vision for Chattanooga focused on economic community development, youth development and public safety and I and the rest of the team are eager to get to work to implementing his vision for our city," said McDonough.
The other two positions are new to Chattanooga government...
Andrew Kean is the Vice Chairman of Rock city and will be the Chattanooga's Chief Operating Officer.
Hays said, "To have somebody that's just got good solid business experience and got some good education is exactly the people you need in city government."
Berke's Senior Advisor and Chief Policy Officer will be Stacy Richardson, who was previously Berke's campaign manager.
"Andy ran a campaign that was one that said we really need to look at a lot of different issues and a lot of those will be policy driven. I think Stacy, she's a bright bright young woman, and I think the city's very fortunate to have somebody like her," said Hays.
Hays also he wasn't surprised Berke chose his office leaders from a younger generation.
"The future of our city is our young community and I think that it's a sign of great things to come that Andy's bringing some young, very aggressive, good energy to city hall," said Hays.
